Disaster Preparedness Presentations

Pillowcase Project and Prepare with Pedro Preparedness Presentations

Join us for our interactive preparedness programs for children which aim to increase awareness and understanding of natural hazards, teach safety and emotional coping skills, as well as the importance of personal preparedness.
Pillowcase Project- geared towards grades 3-5, children learn the best ways to stay safe and how to create their own emergency supply kits by packing essential items in a pillowcase for easy transport during a disaster. Children will receive a digital workbook and will be encouraged to share what they’ve learned with friends and family.
Prepare with Pedro- Pedro the Penguin educates children through a storybook format about how to stay safe and calm during emergencies. 

Be Red Cross Ready - COVID-19
